About 

 

Larissa De Jesús Negrón (b.Puerto Rico, 1994) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Queens, New York who is focused on the expression and interpretation of nostalgia through the narrative of isolation in the confines of interior spaces. She yearns for introspection, self evaluation and amelioration through her intimate and often otherworldly indoor/outdoor mirages. The topic of introspection and self discovery inside of the home has been a recurring theme in Larissa’s work since 2017, when she began her “Home” series. Drawings of still lives of her unaltered day-to-day life at her first house by herself away from her family in Puerto Rico. Today she invites the viewer to get lost in reflection and existentialism through her richly textured, stylistically varied, at times disorienting spaces and portraits. For Larissa, the topic of the home has now, after 5 years, evolved into the topic of nostalgia due to the simple fact that “home” is where your loved ones are, where your culture is and where your most cherished or dreaded memories will always be.
